    I have two Movi rings, I don't know if they are Ring Pro or something else. One of the Toad male mount parts is missing the metal bit that provides the safety latch and I'm not sure what else. The toad in the hole quick release part connects to it fine, and the gimbal operates properly, but without the metal bit on the end that gives it a safety latch, I'm afraid to use it.

    Does anyone know what that metal bit is called, or how I can find a replacement?

    The metal bit is called a strike plate and it's not an in stock part for Freefly. They were nice enough to scavenge one from a salvage ring and sell it to me. The only other option to replace this part on a ring would seem to be to buy a male toad and pull the strike plate from there.
